Maybe...

I'm no expert, either, and it does look like wild strawberry, but it also looks like marsh marigold. Was it in a marshy or soggy area?

Re: Maybe...

There was a stream nearby, but it wasn't necessarily marshy. After looking up marsh marigold, the leaves in this photo seem to more closely resemble some variation of wild strawberry. Thanks for the feedback.

Re: Maybe...

Bob, thank you for the identification! John, if your are satisfied with the information received, please detach your picture from the Unidentified flora and fauna album within the next week so that the album remain 'fresh'. Thanks.

Nope

It's most definitely not a strawberry (leaves are all wrong), and not a marsh marigold (caltha palustris) either (both color and leaf shape are wrong -- caltha natans "floating marsh marigold" has the right color but the wrong leaves). I'll wager it's in the buttercup family, so I'll guess it's some species of anemone.

Re: Nope

Thanks for the identification feedback. I could see it being some kind of anemone, but I never could find a good match with a specific type.

Re: Nope

I agree. Its almost certainly an Anemone. Definitely something in the buttercup family.

Thanks for the identification backup. Some type of Anemone it is...

Re: Thanks

Actually, I think it's Trollius laxus var. albiflorus: white globeflower.

Re: Thanks

I think you're right. Not sure why that didn't occur to me.
